Poem on Andrew Eldritch

“Less is more�


At the beginning he engaged Craig on the bass
Playing in clubs, some covers like “Purple Haze�
Afterwards he hooked up with Wayne
For whom his apathy will always sustain

He used to live in Hamburg, Amsterdam and Leeds
Travelling all along, always finding what he needs
Later on came a life in Italy and currently in Spain
All his impressions left, will forever remain

He moved from Leeds Pudsey to Hamburg Sankt-Pauli
And was familiar with Leamington’s Aleister Crowley
Understanding German, French, Dutch, Italian and Spanish
Been there, done that, still doing it and then a silent vanish

If you listen very well on what’s on Floodland
Easy music, but strong lyrics on the other hand
From the pouring rain over Jordan to Bombay
There was so much he sung and wanted to say

What he writes is obviously oblique
Which is in fact rather unique
Full of politics and mankind on Vision Thing
This is the kind of songs he loves to sing

He lost some fans, but he won some on the other hand
But isn’t this just the case for almost any band
All the remaining fans, as well as the new, don’t mind
We don’t like to spent too much time on who’s blind

With all the new songs an album could easily be filled
It’s not so hard to understand we all would be thrilled
Anyhow, we fully respect Andrew’s choice
‘cause we can come and listen to his live voice

Crowley was from leamington ? is this related to the Spa live they did there ? :)

Interesting is the point about Spain and Italy.. I didn't hear before that he lived there.

*edit- nice one Eloot :)

Crowley was born in Leamington, yes.
I've walked past his birthplace many times. :)

I always thought that was more Carl McCoy's kind of thing.

Or Jimmy Page's.

There was a young goth called Eldritch
Who said to Patricia "Don't bitch.
Just fake strum your bass
And put on a brave face
This project will make us both rich."

Fragment....

Predictable set-list
Sound getting ever worse
Still, f**k the punters
And fill the purse
Well you must know something
'Cos we're dying of admiration here
Mastering obscure alternatives

"Eldritch, why are you such a pussy
When it comes to the drink ?" said young Hussey.
"Just join in the fun
And down some Blue Nun
Or a bottle of red, I'm not fussy."

This don't happen to David Lee Roth
Just cos I wore clothes of black cloth
But Ben's rock star poses
Are more Guns n Roses
Why oh why do they still call us goth.

There once was a twit from Leeds
He had all sorts of needs
Every once in a while he'd get to feeling
that he needed some sexual healing
So a band together he'd scrounge
and mumble filth to the girls in the lounge
till they make the gurgling sound
as they juggle his bollocks around
